BEACH TO BLUEGRASS - by JOE TENNIS
BEACH TO BLUEGRASS: Places to Brake on Virginia's Longest Road (The Overmountain Press, $17.95)
Zooming east from Atlantic Avenue in Virginia Beach, U.S. Highway 58 slips through Norfolk and connects to Portsmouth through the Midtown Tunnel beneath the Elizabeth River. From there, U.S. 58 continues west, eventually reaching Emporia, South Hill, South Boston, Danville, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Mount Rogers, Abingdon, Gate City and Jonesville.
Illustrated with more than 100 photos, "Beach to Bluegrass: Places to Brake on Virginia's Longest Road" (The Overmountain Press, $17.95) by Joe Tennis journeys along U.S. Highway 58 through 58 chapters focused on history, legend, natural wonders and roadside oddities. This is a series of stories - a trail of tales - and most relate and intertwine with each other. This is not only Virginia's longest road, it's the Route 66 of Southern Virginia.
